After putting forth a question regarding crystals and inner guidance to our Peaceful Wellness Sangha Facebook Group, I received responses publicly and privately regarding the use of crystals. In addition, I researched the subject a little more myself and found it fascinating.
My extent of using crystals to enhance Inner Guidance revolves mainly around the quartz crystal singing bowls I use when I perform private sound healing sessions and group sound baths. Using particular tones that align with the upper four chakras (third eye, crown, throat and heart) increases the flow of energy to them and enables a greater use of our intuitive and Higher Self capabilities. I do have a several crystals at home in my Zen Den and scattered around at the studio. However my knowledge and understanding is quite small so I was intrigued by what I learned.
What I learned
Crystals can be used as a tool to connect with spirit guides, as they are believed to have unique vibrational frequencies and energies that can help to facilitate spiritual communication. Here are some steps to use crystals to connect with your spirit guides:
- Choose the right crystal: Different crystals have different properties and can help to enhance specific aspects of your spiritual connection. For example, clear quartz is often used for spiritual communication, while amethyst is believed to enhance intuition and spiritual awareness. More on the crystals below.
- Cleanse and program the crystal: Before using the crystal, it is important to cleanse it of any negative energies and program it with your intention. This can be done by holding the crystal in your hands and visualizing white light surrounding it, or by leaving it in the sun or moonlight for a few hours.
- Meditate with the crystal: Find a quiet, peaceful place to sit and hold the crystal in your hand. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Visualize a bright, white light surrounding you and imagine yourself surrounded by love and positive energy. Ask your spirit guide to come forward and communicate with you.
- Listen to your intuition: When you feel ready, ask your spirit guide any questions you may have and wait for a response. This may come in the form of an inner voice, a physical sensation, or a feeling of knowing. Be open to receiving guidance in any form it may come.
It is important to remember that connecting with spirit guides is a personal and intuitive process, and there is no one right way to do it. These steps can be adjusted or adapted to suit your individual needs and preferences. The most important thing is to trust your own intuition and be open to receiving guidance from your spirit guides.
Which Crystals are Best to Use with Intuition
It was interesting to in the research that amethyst and clear quartz, both which I do own a few of each, enhances that connection to inner spirit.
There are several crystals that are believed to enhance intuition and spiritual awareness, some of the most commonly used crystals for this purpose include:
- Amethyst: Amethyst is a purple crystal that is believed to enhance spiritual awareness and promote deep, introspective meditation. It is also said to improve psychic abilities and strengthen intuition.
- Labradorite: Labradorite is a gray or blue-green crystal that is believed to enhance spiritual connection and stimulate the third eye and crown chakras. It is said to provide guidance and clarity, helping to sharpen intuition and spiritual awareness.
- Moonstone: Moonstone is a white or gray crystal that is associated with the moon and is believed to enhance intuition and psychic abilities. It is also said to provide emotional support and stability, helping to calm the mind and open up to spiritual guidance.
- Clear Quartz: Clear quartz is a clear crystal that is often referred to as the “master healer.” It is believed to enhance spiritual connection and improve communication with spirit guides and angels.
- Lapis Lazuli: Lapis Lazuli is a blue crystal that is believed to enhance intuition and psychic abilities. It is also said to stimulate the third eye and crown chakras, helping to provide spiritual guidance and clarity.
These are just a few examples of crystals that are believed to enhance intuition. The most important thing is to choose a crystal that resonates with you and trust your own intuition when selecting the right crystal for you. It is also important to remember that crystals are simply tools and the power lies within you to connect with your intuition and receive spiritual guidance.
Find the right crystal for you by doing research and experimenting with it as you hold it in your hand.
